    Delay when playing music


    Hi everyone,

    I have a slight delay when playing music after I haven't touched my laptop for a few minutes. It's as if the HDD goes to sleep and it has to spin up again before it can play the file. Now I know getting a SSD would solve my problem, but I can't afford that right now.

    I have set my Hard drive to never go off in the power settings, but it doesn't solve my problem.

    Any help would be much appreciated, thanks

    Check in your Device manager for Sound driver version, you can try upgrading it to newer driver and see whether it fixes the problem.
